Freddie Prinze Jr.'s daughter is a kitchen pro

Actor Freddie Prinze Jr.'s daughter is already a mini masterchef at the age of six years old.

The She's All That star released his first cook book, Back to the Kitchen: 75 Delicious, Real Recipes (& True Stories) from a Food-Obsessed Actor, in June (16), and he reveals the recipes are so simple and straightforward, his little girl Charlotte has learned to make most of the dishes all by herself.


"My daughter crushes it in the kitchen," he gushed. "She can make Korean beef by herself. All I do is mess with the fire, because these fingers have been burned so many times it just doesn't hurt... but everything else she does.


"I started her early - she had plastic knives when I didn't want her to slice her hands off; now she uses pro style... She's better than me!"


Charlotte is Freddie's eldest child with his actress wife Sarah Michelle Gellar. They are also parents to son Rocky, who turns four later this month (Sep16).


Freddie and Charlotte aren't the only cooks in the family - Sarah launched her own baking line, Foodstirs, last year (15).


The Buffy the Vampire Slayer star, who portrayed a chef in 1999 film Simply Irresistible, initially created three different mixes to help fans easily whip up batches of brownies, cupcakes and cookies, complete with decorative frosting kits, all free of artificial preservatives, flavours and colours.


The Foodstirs line has since expanded, and now Gellar is channelling her love of food decoration into a new book, described as "a comprehensive, fun and inspiring guide to the art of food crafting from concept to execution", which is expected to be released in 2017.
